Very classic Gravelly on the nose with plums, currants and hot stones, as well as spices. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful, delicious finish. Purity and finesse. Drink or hold.

Richly concentrated yet elegant in style, this wine is brimming in dense layers of baked plum, mocha and leather. The tannins are sinewy and supportive, with great structure and power. VIRGINIE BOONE

Edgy grip rides underneath on the finish, with black tea and singed alder accents trailing. Shows a smoldering intensity. Best from 2022 through 2038. 711 cases made. — JM

Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals a good concentration of red and black fruit preserves, while the tannins are just a little rugged with a chewy/stewed texture. It is a little hard and charred on the back palate/finish. The blend this year is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 22 months in French oak, 100% new. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
